When Kayn opened his eyes in the empty void, he was met with a familiar voice and the knowledge that he was neither dead nor alive and about to be reincarnated.

What he didn't expect was to reappear in the world of the living and immediately get captured by a clan of demons, now living as their prisoner. 

After a lucky encounter, Kayn stumbles upon a room that could possibly give him what he needs to free himself from their captivity.

But, as he soon finds out, escaping from the demon queen herself isn't the easiest of tasks...

Blood and Honor (Rewrite)

Blood and Honor (Rewrite)

Fate is such a simple and complicated word. It is also the name of the most popular VRMMORPG. Do what you want, be what you want. Your fate is what you make of it. 

Their is also wealth and power from Fate Online for those willing to take it and fight for it. For the people fighting from the bottom up, they are willing to do almost anything. Even kill or betray. 

I learned that the hard way, but when a man losses everything, he can do pretty much anything.

Note* I do not own the Pic, I did not create it. All credit of the PIC/Art goes to the original creator
Note* Rewrites are coming starting 08-March-2021
Note* Chapters will be released on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
